MSME Finance Gap

Description: 

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are one of the strongest drivers of economic development, innovation and employment.
Access to finance is frequently identified as a critical barrier to growth for MSMEs.Creating opportunities for MSMEs in emerging markets is a key way to advance economic development and reduce poverty.
The private and public sector can better address this matter if they have better insights about the magnitude and nature of the finance gap. Hence, sizing MSME finance gap is crucial for the governors, financiers and other private sector players to...

Historical IFC Financial Clients’ Reach Data

Description: 

Lack of access to financial services is a key barrier to the growth of micro, small, medium enterprises (MSMEs). IFC is working to develop solutions to close the MSME financing gap. By partnering with many types of financial intermediaries, including microfinance institutions (MFIs), commercial banks, leasing companies, and private equity funds, IFC reaches many more small and medium enterprises (SMEs) than it could directly.

Albania - Public Buildings Inventory and Energy Profiles

Description: 

The buildings inventory is based on a survey of all Albanian municipalities and ministries that are owners and operators of public buildings. 17 walk-through energy audits were performed for standard buildings in different climatic zones in order to determine typical energy consumption and building characteristics and retrofit needs as well as to extrapolate the data for the whole population of public buildings in the country based on the number and types of buildings data collected.

Tanzania - Region & District Boundary

Description: 

The datasets are curated from the Tanzania National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) 2012 Population and Housing Census (PHC) of Tanzania which was preceded by the preparatory geographic work, which involved field visiting of all regions, districts, wards/shehia, villages/mitaa, localities and sub-villages in the country, primarily to create and delineate Enumeration Area boundaries (EAs) so as to produce maps required for census operations. The most important principle followed in delineating an EA was that under no circumstance should an EA overlap the existing administrative boundaries of...

Yemen - Electricity Transmission Network

Description: 

Main nodes and major lines of the electricity transmission network of Yemen.

The properties for nodes are "name" and "node type" (city, town, plant, dam...). The properties for lines are the "transmission power" in kV (e.g. 400), the "type of line" (single, double...), the linked nodes (identified by the nodes names) and, for international interconnections, the "interconnection" property gathers the two linked countries identified by name.
